Arik Royal vs. Daniel Makabe
In a much anticipated first-time-ever encounter at Have Fun, Be Sad, Daniel Makabe will do battle with Arik Royal. The Vancouver-native mat specialist will have his hands full with the formidable Royal. On paper, it appears to be a style mismatch, but for a man of his size, Royal isn’t just a hoss fighter. Makabe will need to use his extensive wrestling knowledge to come up with the most effective strategy if he wants to fell this big foe.
Violence is Forever (Dominic Garrini & Kevin Ku) vs. FinJuice (David Finlay & Juice Robinson)
The lost art of great tag team wrestling will be found at Have Fun, Be Sad. The wrecking machine force that is Violence is Forever will collide with international stars David Finlay and Juice Robinson, FinJuice. This is another first-time-ever encounter. This match is likely made possible due to All Elite Wrestling “opening the forbidden door” by setting the precedent for contracted talent to appear with other promotions. FinJuice is the current IMPACT Wrestling Tag Team Champions after having defeated The Good Brothers. If you are a fan of tag team wrestling, this one is for you.
SUP Bonestorm Championship Match: AJ Gray (c) vs. JD Drake
In a major hoss fight, AJ Gray will defend his SUP Bonestorm title against JD Drake. Drake is looking to break out as a singles star after the disbanding of his long-time team with Anthony Henry, The Workhorsemen. Recent appearances on AEW have gotten Drake some much-needed buzz and ending Gray’s 180+ day reign would only keep his momentum going. “Rich Homie Juice” certainly isn’t going to give up his title easily though, Drake is going to have to work for it.
